SHOCKWAVE STUDIO®,LLC began in 2009 when Owner, Operator, Musician, Producer, Engineer, Editor, and AVID Certified Pro Tools Expert Hans Kuester decided it was time to build a state-of-the-art Recording and Post-Production Studio at his Private Estate in Sammamish Washington. The construction and installation finished in the summer of 2011. SHOCKWAVE STUDIO®,LLC was specifically built to provide an environment that inspires creativity and offers an alternative to traditional, commercial Recording and Post-Production Studios. SHOCKWAVE STUDIO®,LLC sits on a beautiful private acre of manicured land set among three hundred acres of idyllic Washington forest with full views of Lake Sammamish, and the Olympic mountains. Three of the four rooms that make up SHOCKWAVE STUDIO®,LLC were designed by Haverstick Designs with doors weighing in at 450 pounds each. The live room is capable of accommodating a full band, with careful consideration given to every aspect of the acoustics. An on-site video editing suite loaded with arsenal of equipment includes a high end 4K 3D Movie Theater providing all of the resources needed for TV, Motion Pictures, or other Visual Media Post-Production. Audio and Video is distributed simultaneously to the Control Room and the Theater from the Video Edit room in real-time. All the equipment is housed in a soundproof machine room allowing for noise-free recording in all of the four rooms. A 40-fader ICON D-Command ES console provides comprehensive control of a fully loaded Pro Tools Ultimate|HDX system. Parallel Genelec Stereo and 7.1 monitoring systems deliver accurate output for a wide range of project requirements.
